Serious Sam for the Palm OS Review
Serious Sam is Global Star Software's first person shooting game for the Palm OS. It has levels, weapons, monsters, and just about everything else required for a good shooting game.
There's only 15 monsters, which may sound like a lot to you, but for me seeing the same old creatures got old rather quickly. Most of them aren't too challenging, as long as they don't sneak up behind you or appear in huge numbers you should escape unharmed.But when they do sneak up, you'd better act fast or else you'll soon be starting a new game. Although if you're badly injured you can just sit in a safe place and watch your health climb slowly back to 100.
There are quite a few weapons you can use, too. Although the standard gun they give you in the beginning can kill just about anything if you pull the trigger enough times, it just isn't as fun as some of the higher level artillery. Of course when you get the big weapons out you need ammo, and of course its not easy to find. But if you switch weapons both often and carefully you can have a great mix of high intensity fighting and enough ammunition to fight your way to the next level.
As for color usage, it wasn't perfect, but it was far from awful. When in motion the smooth scrolling was amazing, and it was loads of fun to explore the various levels on my Palm. Most of the levels were grainy, and some of them were exceptionally difficult to play because parts had horrendously poor shading. Overall the graphics were surprisingly good compared to what the screen shots had led me to believe.
